The Church in the 21st Century by Chris Holland

Learn three of the five (5) biblical metaphors used in Seventh-day Adventists’ ecclesiology (the study of the nature and structure of the Christian Church) to categorize or describe the church. Understand how these metaphors apply to the church in the 21st century and what they mean to the leadership and the laity.

– Taught by Pastor Chris Holland

The church and Christianity are evolving – rapidly – in a century where commerce, communications, social interactions, and travel are connected globally in unprecedented ways. Many are asking if the church is still relevant today. How do we understand what long-term impact, if any, will the global pandemic have on the church? In this course, Dr. Chris Holland searches the Bible for answers to these and other questions related to the nature and structure of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (Adventist ecclesiology) in the 21st century.

This is the first course, in a two-course series developed from virtual training sessions sponsored by Newbold College of the United Kingdom and attended by pastors and lay leaders from conferences in the Trans-European Division (TED) of Seventh-day Adventists. These training sessions were held in August 2021. After successfully completing both courses in the series, you will receive a personalized, digital Certificate of Completion.

In this course you will:

  • Learn three of the five (5) biblical metaphors used in Seventh-day Adventists’ ecclesiology to categorize or describe the church. Ecclesiology is the study of the nature and structure of the Christian Church.
  • Understand how these metaphors apply to the church in the 21st century and what it means to the leadership and the laity
  • Learn how to avoid consumeristic Christianity in your membership
  • Gain additional information and insight from Dr. Chris Holland’s responses to the attendees’ questions
  • Be able to download a copy (PDF file) of the presenter’s slides for study offline
